Juventus Bound Federico Bernardeschi Attacked By Fiorentina Fans

Fiorentina forward, Federico Bernardeschi, have been tagged a “s*** hunchback” by Fiorentina’s irate fans, as he edges closer to Juventus move.

The fans placed a banner outside the club’s stadium, saying: “Who wouldn’t want to spit in your face…you s*** hunchback.” after Fiorentina’s Director Pantaleo Corvino, confirms the 23-year-old rejected a new contract offer.

“Bernardeschi doesn’t want to renew, despite Fiorentina having made a major offer.”

“We have the privilege of having one of the brightest stars of Italian football — we’ll see what we have to do.” Pantaleo Corvino said.

Labeled, the ‘new Roberto Baggio’, Bernardeschi is considered as one of Italy’s brightest youngsters in recent years and have been reportedly linked to Chelsea and Manchester United.

In 1990, Fiorentina’s fans protested on the streets of Florence when the club sold Roberto Baggio to Juventus for then world record fee of £8million, a move that strained the relationship between the two Italian giants.
